With the prime minister last week giving new impulse to the idea of imposing a legal requirement on students to contribute to the cost of their higher education, CBW examined what financial burden they could face.

Klára Matoušková, 20, is saving for a trip to England before college. It's with a broad smile that 23-year-old Jakub Feige, when asked about his summer plans, says he intends to do nothing much at all. "I'm at home," Feige says, standing in the hallway of Charles University's Philosophical Faculty in Old Town, where he studies history. Home is Jablonec nad Nisou, up north. There he'll ride his bike, he says. He'll play football.
